GREATER MANCHESTER, U.K. - Aug. 26, 2014 - PRLog -- A Manchester based bespoke wall and floor-covering company Forrest & Jones have been short-listed for the prestigious Society of British Interior Design’s International Design Awards in recognition of their work within London’s stylish Hoxley & Porter bar-restaurant in Islington.

The company were commissioned by London based Kai Design, one of their oldest clients, to produce a seamless wall-covering over three full walls without any joints whatsoever and F&J director and co-founder Mark Forrest decided to take on the mammoth task himself.

“Our SuperSpan seamless wall-covering, which can be produced up to five metres by 25 metres long in one complete piece is waterproof, extremely durable and completely PVC free – so was perfect for the job in hand, “explained Mark, speaking from his office and showroom in King Street, Manchester.

“Installation was straightforward, taking just a third of the time to install as ‘normal’ digitally printed wall-coverings. And thanks to the exotic and geometric imagery, the end result was both ultra stylish and quite breath-taking.

“All in all, the print quality of the wall-covering and the ease of installation makes this, our premier product, a real contender for the Contract Product Award 2014,” added Mark, whose business re-located from Preston to Manchester in May.

“I couldn’t be more delighted to hear the news that we’ve been short-listed for a prestigious SBID award,” added the wall-coverings expert who over a 40 plus year career has designed exclusive wallpapers for Coronation Street’s Rovers Return and the set of ‘Only Fools and Horses’ to name just two.

Mark and his business partner Gareth Jones relocated their office production and facilities  from Lancashire to Manchester in response to increasing demand for their services from Greater Manchester businesses.

“We’ve not stopped since we arrived here,” added Mark. “Business has never been better but this short-listing for a very prestigious award can only enhance our reputation. We couldn’t have wished for a better welcome to Manchester.”
